[How To] McGyver Your Android’s Battery

Before we begin, remember that the first person to do this was a fellow by the name of Sorensiim, aka the McGyver of Android, so don't be surprised if you can't do it on the first try or you end up making your device explode into a ball of fire all over your face. WATCH OUT because not only is this a hardware hack, it's dealing with live wires which can give you a bit of a zap. Now that we've got that out of the way, lets talk about what Sorensiim did. It began when he was installing a System Recovery app - he clicked the recovery boot button and found that once booting, he got a message that said "Battery low - cannot program." This is what he did.

Tired of Read Only? MAGLRD for HD2 Lets you Boot Directly to Android!

Holy crap! A team of Android and WP7 developers and coders by the name of DFT has found a way to allow you to boot directly to Android, straight from NAND memory! What does this mean? It means that the entire OS is now writeable or otherwise easily modifiable. When you're messing with ROMs, you're in Read-Only, requiring that you flash to modify. When your OS is on NAND, you can modify entirely without a recovery flash. What MAGLDR is is a bootloader for HD2 that lets you boot directly from NAND - the ROM available for you to test out now!

CyanogenMod 7 on the Horizon, Nexus S Alpha Version Already Out!

Those super cool developers of CyanogenMod are whipping up a new version as we speak, XDA letting us know that there's an unofficial alpha version available for Nexus S now. Christmas day there was a tweet from the folks at Cyanogen that said they'd not released an official version of 7 because they'd not fixed the camcorder yet. Later that day, a fix did indeed occur. XDA Developers forum member Koush released an alpha version with the fix, the real deal undoubtedly now heading up quick.

Nexus S Optimized Kernel Voodoo

Behold! Craziness with your Nexus S, all after you put your root down and get to business. Voodoo business. What XDA forum member supercurio says is that this is the first kernel to implement Ext4 mount options optimization as well as the first Optimized kernel for Nexus S ever. What this particular project does is to bring your Nexus S back to the pre-compiled kernel shipped on your device (or close to it.) And what's that do? Makes it "very snappy."

Grab a Lagfix for your Galaxy S Device WITHOUT Voodoo

So you've got a Galaxy S device and you want it improved. You'd like it not only to work better, but faster. Have you taken a bite of Voodoo?
